Description: 1983 Sabre 38 MKI “Thistle” For Sale

My girlfriend and I purchased Thistle only a year ago with the intention of sailing to Labrador and the Caribbean. We started our refit in January of 2016 and launched the boat after extensive work in May 2016. Sailing north we passed through Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, up to the Hamilton Inlet and safely returned home. The boat could not be a better exploration platform. With an Espar diesel heater she kept us warm through 31-degree water temperatures, multiple gales, and plenty of rain. Upon our return to Maine, we followed our refit up with the necessary maintenance and some further improvements. Since we were not able to carry on to the Caribbean, the boat is turnkey and in exemplary shape.
